Comparing PHP to CGI/Perl is pointless. Compare PHP to either Apache::EmbPerl or HTML::Mason, and you are starting to get a fair comparison.

Having watched PHP develop over the years, it started out as a very simple Perl replacement, but then has been slowly adding features of Perl one by one, but three to five years later. In another five years, it'll probably be where Perl is now.

So why wait? With Perl, you get a mature language, and a language that works as well off the web as on. And HTML::Mason and everything else in the CPAN make leveraging other people's implementation a snap for nearly any common task.

PHP - it's "training wheels without the bike".

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
